Topics for the Monday January 13

After the Chritmas Holidays we return to our meetings every Monday in the public library in the Spanish Square of Ferrol at 12 o’clock, with the purpose of practising english, and this blog will continue to provide topics to talk about in our sessions.

First an interesting video from The Documentary Network from YouTube:

The Well:  Covering Capitol Hill (Documentary).

A rare glimpse into the way press photographers cover the politicians of the United States Congress and the problems they face. Leading political photographers in Washington talk about the perills of the 24/7 news cycle and the increasingly sparce access.
“It’s the genesis of the image as much as the ontological image itself that matters.”- Dr. Kerric Harvey, Media Anthropologist at GWU.
